Early Dismissal Movies

On each of the early dismissal days, (days scheduled for parent/teacher conferences in the fall and spring), families may sign up their children in grades K-5 for a movie in the Theater from 12:30 to 2:20 pm. These films are listed on forms sent home well before the early dismissal dates. Children in grades K-2 are accompanied by student teachers. Children in grades 3-5 walk from their classroom to the theater on their own.  After the movie, a snack is provided in the cafeteria (usually real movie theater popcorn!)

Proceeds from these films support the PTO.
